Fond farewell to Lymm Tennis Club stalwart Mike Dyble


FAMILY and friends have bid a fond farewell to Lymm Tennis Club stalwart Mike Dyble, one of the founding members of a Manchester marketing agency behind the launch of iconic brands including Transformers and My Little Pony in the UK in the 1980s.

Mike, aged 84, died in Warrington Hospital recently with his family by his bedside.
He was a keen member of Lymm Tennis Club, still playing in his eighties and recently coordinating the clubhouse renovations and floodlights. He was also a regular at the Chicago Teddybears’ jazz sessions in Grappenhall.

Mike is survived by his wife Pauline and his four children, Mark, Amanda, Jacqueline and Nigel, as well as his eight grandchildren.
The funeral took place at Lymm Baptist Church, today, May 4th and funeral arrangements were by John Burrows and Sons of Lymm.
In his business life Mike was one of the founding members of Manchester agency BDH and Piccadilly Radio Chairman.
Nine years after it was founded in 1964, BDH moved to Oakland House in Old Trafford, becoming the biggest independent agency outside of London.
Mike had always had a passion for the toy industry, and BDH often had a toy account on its books. He helped successfully launch the Transformers and My Little Pony brands in the mid-80s.
Later in life, he was also a Director at Bauer Radio’s Cash For Kids, a network of local charities that operate across 22 areas around the UK.
